1960s 'Spider-Man' Animated Series Launches On Marvel Website

'Spider-Man'Spider-Man has stormed your local comic shops, movie theaters, television screens and, in about a year, New York's theater district. Now you can add one more media outlet to the hero's ever-growing list: the wise-cracking webhead's heading to the Web!

Riding the success of their re-released Japanese "Spider-Man" series, Marvel.com is reintroducing the world to the "Spider-Man" animated series from 1967.

Yes, that's the very same television show that engraved the lyrics "Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can" into mainstream popular culture. With the re-airing of the old '60s series, you'll have plenty of time to reacquaint yourself with that oh-so catchy theme song.

In the animated series, young Peter Parker develops amazing skills and strength after being bitten by a radioactive spider. He decides to use his newfound abilities to fight crime as the red-and-blue clad Spider-Man -- all while dealing with the everyday woes of teenage angst.

The first episode, which you can watch here, features two separate stories. In "The Power of Dr. Octopus," the multi-armed villain kidnaps Spider-Man to hold the city ransom. In "Sub-Zero for Spidey," the superhero does battle with ice creatures to prevent New York City from freezing.

You can watch new episodes of "Spider-Man" every Thursday on Marvel.com, proving that the internet isn't entirely evil.
